Jet2

Seat Maps for summer 2020 now showing 4 based A321's as expected.

And now LISBON has been added from BHX and MAN according to drop down destination list on website. Reportedly twice weekly Mon and Fri mid April to end of June and from mid-Sept to end of Oct.

This makes a grand total of 50 Jet2 destinations served from BHX in 2020....will there be any more?!

I've read elsewhere that PUJ is indeed available next winter but GOI isnt, the press release in true TUI style released before booking systems fully updated! But you never know, GOI has always been.a popular route on the occasions it has operated!

I suspect Birmingham will be come Jet2s second biggest uk departure aiirport in 2021. With added based airframes and more destinations far our stripping the forecast of Stansted and better than Leeds.

CSA Summer 2020

CSA Czech Airways, won't be returning to Birmingham this summer, citing 737 Max delayed deliveries as the reason why, airline has 7 grounded Max's and 32 on order still...

another airline to remove of the serving list, maybe Jet 2 will pick up the slack again?

Goa now bookable Wednesday next winter

Punta Cana looks a bit more like spin as yes more seats but you still can't book it for nearly 4 out the 6 months but when you can it is twice weekly.

The timings of the Monday Dubai World Central and Wednesday LWK & UTP really means the second 787 is operating every weekday.

Now for the even better news....Cancun increased to up to 3 a week summer 2020 making the second 787 based for 2 days. Wednesday has been added and this results in an increase in seats after the initial strange decrease as the Monday service disappears for 6 weeks as the aircraft heads north. No such luck for Montego Bay which also halves for 6 weeks.

Qatar A359 started today for its brief pre Christmas run.

Ionian Holidays are offering EFL PVK on the Manchester Jet2 but not using BHX's new service which is a shame.

Aegean & TUI

Great news about Aegean and a very welcome return despite the night hour schedule. They offer some great connections to some of the lesser known Greek Islands or, as I did, it's easy to stopover in ATH before heading out from Pireaus on the ferries.

Also very pleased to see Goa back, it's a fantastic, if touristy, winter beach destination and it's easy to fly onwards from Goa to Mumbai and Delhi to see 'classic' India, depending of course on the seat only prices...

In other news, I have it on very reliable authority that work starts very soon to re-brand the entire Flybe check in area ias Virgin Connect and that they are committed to BHX. However, the long term route strategy from BHX is still a work in progress, but new routes are not out of the question althoughh no major changes in based units planned for the foreseeable
